The OS/2 operating system started out as a joint venture between Microsoft and IBM. That venture fell apart as Microsoft went its own way with Windows. This program looks at IBM's OS/2 and compares its features to Microsoft's Windows 3.0. Demonstrations include Sound Impression, cc:Mail, Lotus 1-2-3, AmiPro, and SuperProject. Includes a visit to ZD Labs for their evaluation of Windows NT and to the annual IBM OS/2 conference. Guests include John Soyring, IBM's manager of software development, and Edwin Black, publisher of OS/2 Professional. Originally broadcast in 1993.

Subject: OS/2 2.0's best days
An interesting show filmed just before Microsoft began their full assault to finish OS/2.

Two years remained until Windows 95, and OS/2 2.1 was battling DOS-based Windows 3.11, and the brand new Windows NT 3.1.

OS/2 2.1 is demoed on the show.

IBM had the rights to include Microsoft 16-bit Windows code, known as Win-OS2 so that OS/2 could run virtually any 16-bit Windows app.

ccMail was demoed.
